I love the trend of hanging embroidery projects still in their hoops, so I've decided to make my own hoop-y wall! This is numero uno.







It took me about six hours of stitching from start to finish, because I got in the zone like a maniac and wouldn't stop even for food. God help me if I ever try to do a really big project. >_<

I used chain stitch, bullion, whipped spider wheels, French knots, and the like. Really pretty simple. :-D

Very beautiful! I always love these abstract patterns. Did you make it up yourself?

Thanks! I did make it up myself, though admittedly I was inspired by all the beautiful free-form embroidery projects I've seen all over the web (especially this one)

I love it- it comes through as a sort of explosion of inspiration and color, and your stitch work is lovely.
